  • Restorative Justice Update

    Hello Beaumont Middle School Parents, Guardians, Caretakers!

     My name is Rachel Bruneau and I will be joining the staff at Beaumont as the new Restorative Justice Coordinator as of Tuesday, April 3rd, till the end of the current school year. I am here to continue and build on the work that’s been established while providing ongoing support for you, your student(s), and our staff, whenever possible. Please feel free to contact me throughout my time at Beaumont Middle School. And also, please feel free to refer to me by my first name, Rachel! 

    To share a little about myself, I am a student at Portland State University working towards a master’s in Conflict Resolution and a master’s in Curriculum and Instruction. Throughout my learning experience I have been focused on restorative justice in public schools. With this, my practicum work is currently at HB Lee Middle School in Gresham. At this school, I have been working with 7th graders and teaching them to facilitate restorative circles while helping them build strong relational ties in their school community. Last fall, I had an awesome opportunity to work with three-year old’s at a Portland Parks and Rec preschool where I attempted to see what restorative circles might look like at this young of an age. This was an awesome challenge that guided my approach and outlook on restorative practices in education!

    Outside of my work in education, I have a full and busy house with a preschooler, a kindergartner, and a high schooler! We keep busy with girl scouts, robotics, and sporting activities like soccer and swim lessons. I have been given the opportunity to volunteer at my kindergartner’s elementary school, at times working closely with the PTA, teachers, and administration.

    I truly look forward to my work here at Beaumont and I hope to make the most of our time together. I want to extend my offer to all of you that if there is support I might be able to provide for you and yours, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me.

     

    Thank you for this time,

    Rachel Bruneau


     

    Hola Padres y Guardianes de Beaumont:

     Mi nombre es Rachel Bruneau,  me uniré al personal de Beaumont como la nueva coordinadora de Justicia Restaurativa a partir del martes, 3 de abril hasta el final del año escolar. Estoy aquí para continuar y construir sobre el trabajo que se ha establecido mientras brindamos apoyo continuo para usted, su estudiante y nuestro personal, siempre que sea posible. Por favor, siéntase libre de contactarme durante todo mi tiempo en la Escuela Beaumont. ¡Y también, por favor siéntase libre de referirse a mí por mi primer nombre, Rachel!

    Para compartir un poco sobre mí, soy estudiante de la Universidad Estatal de Portland y estoy trabajando para obtener una maestría en Resolución de Conflictos y una maestría en Currículo e Instrucción. A lo largo de mi experiencia de aprendizaje, me he centrado en la justicia restaurativa en las escuelas públicas. Con esto, mi trabajo de práctica se encuentra actualmente en la Escuela Secundaria HB Lee en Gresham. En esta escuela, he estado trabajando con 7 mo grado y en la enseñanza  para facilitar círculos restaurativos al tiempo que ayudamos a construir fuertes lazos de relaciones en su comunidad escolar. El otoño pasado, tuve la increíble oportunidad de trabajar con  niños de tres años en una escuela preescolar del Departamento de Parques y Recreación de la Ciudad de Portland, donde intenté ver cómo se verían los círculos restaurativos a esta temprana edad. ¡Este fue un gran desafío que me sirvió de guía en  mi enfoque y perspectiva sobre las prácticas restaurativas en la educación!

    ¡Fuera de mi trabajo en educación, tengo una casa llena y ocupada con una niña de preescolar, otra de kínder y una estudiante de secundaria! Nos mantenemos ocupadas con las niñas exploradoras, la robótica y las actividades deportivas, como las clases de fútbol y natación. Se me brindó la oportunidad de ser voluntaria en la escuela primaria de mi jardín de niños, allí trabajo estrechamente con la PTA, los maestros y la administración.

    Realmente espero con ansias desarrollar mi trabajo aquí en Beaumont y  aprovechar al máximo nuestro tiempo juntos. Deseo extender mi oferta a todos ustedes para que, si de alguna manera puedo brindarle apoyo a usted y a los suyos, no dude en comunicarse conmigo.

     

    Gracias por su tiempo,

    Rachel Bruneau

    Beaumont Families,

     

    Thank you for your patience as we continue to work on the safety at Beaumont, for all students.  Yesterday, it was brought to my attention three students who are not Beaumont students have threatened retaliation as a result of the fight among students last week.   We have taken action on this threat to involve the PPS Security Department, Portland Police and The Administration at the two schools where the students attend. I am working closely with my supervisor, Karl Logan throughout this process.

     

    As a result:

    • Students involved in the incidents will receive discipline according to the Portland Public Schools Student Handbook and Discipline Guide.
    • Students who have made threats towards Beaumont students are being trespassed from the Beaumont campus. We are working with their school Administrators and the Portland Police to address the unacceptable behaviors of students who are not enrolled at Beaumont.
    • We have increased daily hallway monitoring at Beaumont.
    • We are reviewing and adjusting the lunch supervision.
    • April 11th, students attended an Anti-Bullying assembly for which a follow up plan will be developed. This plan will be completed by the Beaumont Climate Committee to reinforce the concepts taught during the assembly throughout the month of April and beyond.
    • Starting Monday April 16th, we will have a campus monitor on site. This is an additional adult on site to monitor the campus.
    • We are requesting additional presence from the School Resource Officers throughout the school day.
    • We are also requesting presentations related to Cyber Bullying and Safety from the School Resource Officers with the Portland Police.
    • We have a newly assigned Restorative Justice Coordinator, Rachel Bruneau who has been assigned to Beaumont for the remainder of the year. She has recently sent home a letter to parents. It will also be uploaded to the Beaumont website.

    To anonymously make a report of suspicious or imminently unsafe situations, such as threats of violence, fights, drugs and alcohol, weapons, bullying, harassment, intimidation or self-harm contact the SafeOregon tip line by:

    • Sending a message to this email tip@safeoregon.com
    • Or by making A live call/text (844-472-3367)

    A mobile app can be downloaded to your Smart Phone via iTunes or Google from the SafeOregon website.

     

    If you would like to discuss any of these measures, or have additional suggestions, we would love to hear from you. 

     

    Respectfully,

    Harriette Vimegnon

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Русский| Soomaali

    Dear PPS Community,

    Please know that in collaboration with school administrators, district leadership actively monitored the hundreds of mostly middle and high school students who walked out of our schools today as part of a national demonstration against violence in schools. I am pleased to say that, by all reports, this was a peaceful and respectful event with no serious incidents. While these actions were not district-sponsored activity, I would like to extend my sincere thanks to all who helped keep students safe, starting with the students themselves who remained organized, calm and intentional throughout. Others who helped include Portland police, PPS security, and other PPS staff. Thank you all.

  • A message from Deputy Superintendent Dr. Yvonne Curtis on 2018-19 staffing levels

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Русский| Soomaali

    Portland Public Schools is in the process of allocating teaching staff at schools throughout the district. As has been true for many years, we are working within a budget that has been chronically underfunded by the state, and we are doing our utmost to make the most of the resources we have. Understandably, parents, students and PPS staff want to know what will happen at their specific schools. While precise allocations won’t be known until enrollment figures become clear in the fall, we can share what we know at this point, and answer many of the questions we have heard to date.

    It’s been 50 years since some impassioned students led the movement to rename their school after Martin Luther King, Jr. Last Friday, the community turned out in force to show appreciation, and to honor Dr. King with a huge celebration at the school.
